...where did they come from? To be a tad more specific, all these sons and daughters of baddies suddenly running around. Most of them are late teens at the youngest and a lot are adults but their parents have never been shown to be old enough to have children that age. Justine Hammer and Princess Python look the usual late 20s-Early 30s of most comic characters and yet they have adult kids. Same thing with most the parents of the Secret Warriors. The one that really gets me is Death Reaper from the "Dark Reign: Zodiac" mini. Since Nekra and the Grim Reaper didn't meet until she joined the Lethal Legion, that means that means those stories in "West Coast Avengers" and "Vision and the Scarlet Witch" took place around twenty years ago. That pushes a lot of people in spandex into their late 40's-early 50s. Normally I'm not a continuity freak, but Marvel seems to be introducing these characters every few months with a lineage that just doesn't make sense. At least go with villains that look like they're old enough to have full-grown rugrats.
